Man City lay Guardiola foundations with Txiki appointment

Manchester City are laying the foundations to bring former Barcelona coach Pep Guardiola to England. The Daily Star Sunday says City hope to give the job to ex-Barcelona ace Txiki ­Begiristain - a close friend of ­Guardiola.

His appointment, which includes responsibility for recruiting players, comes after he turned down a similar offer from Tottenham.

But it is just the first step on the road to City's goal of bringing former Barca boss Guardiola to the Etihad.

Begiristain's arrival means a major shake-up of backroom duties, with a reduced role for football administrator Brian Marwood.
